Trail to the active crater - Tagaytay

Trail to the active crater

Trek to the active crater of Taal Volcano

Contrary to what I previously thought, the volcano crater that's usually shown on promotional materials for Taal is not the active one.
Follow the trail as shown on the picture to get to the active crater and take a dip in the lake within the volcano.

Inactive crater of Taal Volcano - Tagaytay

Inactive crater of Taal Volcano

7.07kms from Tagaytay

A 15 min drive from Tagaytay on a steep road will lead you down to the lakeshore town of Talisay, Batangas.
So close to the mountain yet with a different feel down here where you're just a boat ride away from the famous volcano within a lake where there's a volcano with a lake within. Did I get that right? :-)
Talisay, Batangas is the jump off point for those who want an up close and personal look at Taal Volcano and volcano island.
We followed Philippine Star editor in chief, Ana Marie Pamintuan's advice and headed to San Roque Beach Resort where we experienced Filipino and Dutch hospitality in this cozy resort owned and managed by Lita and Leo Mercx.
Lita's son took us on the boat to take photos closer to volcano island but it was a bit late in the morning to go all around it and too hot to make the trek to the crater.
Taal lake is the best breeding ground for tilapia and an elusive fish called tawilis which the lake is known for.
Lunch, of course, was grilled, fresh tilapia and pochero (Batangas beef with a thick soup and fresh vegetables).
